I attended another laser etching workshop put on by Women.Design.Build and MAKEatx. In a previous workshop we etched pint glasses and in this workshop we etched cardboard covered moleskin notebooks. Because I already have a number of notebooks for notes and drawing, I decided to etch a notebook for my sister. In preparation for the class, I drew a design using her name and scanned it into a jpg file that could be converted to black and white and loaded into the software that controls the laser.

A shelf full of laser-etched goodness at MAKEatx.
Love the mustaches on sticks and the jackalope.

The notebooks were placed in the laser and the cover weighted with large washers since the cover is a bit lightweight.
The laser doing its thing.
An awesome idea for a notebook cover made by one of my friends at the workshop.
